Black Shrink Plastic

I made this card using our set of 2 Butterflies
I stamped the large butterfly in white Brilliance onto black shrink plastic.  Brilliance does not dry on the shrink until you have shrunk it so you need to be careful when cutting out so as not to smudge the design.
I used the same white inkpad to stamp the small butterfly onto the black card.

Embossing on Vellum

Another one from Craft Clinic.
They gave me some Tent Cards to use and this is one of the samples.  Unfortunately I gave the other away to a viewer so don't have a picture.
I stamped and embossed the butterfly onto vellum using very bright pigment inkpads.  I then covered with JudiKins Pastel embossing powder which pearlises and softens the colour of the ink (as you can see).
I stamped the small butterflies with Versamagic inkpads.

Lady Crawford

This is another card from our Paper Clinic.
This time I embossed the window onto vellum using a clear inkpad and white embossing powder.
I coloured the back of the vellum with a Versamagic inkpad.
I stamped Lady Crawford in Grey Memento and coloured with just two Promarkers.
Our Etched Flourish is stamped in the background using the same grey Memento inkpad.

This is the Poppy card that Vicky made with our 3D flower stamps by stamping onto paper, distressing and then screwing up the paper, before smoothing out and layering onto the card.
The background stamp is from our Vintage No.1 set.

If you saw our Paper Clinic show on Create & Craft on Monday you would have seen me make these two cards.
The top card has 2 shrink plastic butterflies, both coloured with Versamagic, white shrink coloured on the front and translucent shrink coloured on the back.
The second card is the butterfly embossed on Window Plastic (heat embossable acetate) and coloured on the back with inkpads and Diamond Glaze.  The small butterfly in the background come with the large stamp and has been stamped with white Brilliance.
